On December 1, the National Library of the Republic of Belarus offered to the academic community of the capital city a round table conference on the role of the Bible in formation of democratic societies. Leading historians shared their findings on the theme.
The World Evangelical Alliance was represented by Prof. Dr. Johannes Reimer, Germany, who read a paper entitled “The Role of the Bible in Society Transformation.“ His presentation was highly welcomed and discussed by other presenters.
The event received broad coverage in the Byelorussian press and marks a new opening of the academic world to the Bible and Christianity as such.
